Does this still work if you don't run chrooted?
To the OP: does this happen every reboot, or when you update the
system? I used to have tha latter problem, and fixed it by adding
NO_BIND_ETC= true # Do not install files to /etc/namedb
to /etc/make.conf. Upsides: no permission mangling, and no
automatic file update. Downside: no automatic file update, though
you can deal with this using mergeaster.
